You should carry a tissue!

Sitting on a train next to the ultimate sniffer. A well dressed woman with naice bag, scarf etc. Every 30 seconds or so she is sniffing, or wiping her nose with her hand.

It is making this hot rage descend on me, I can feel it tingling down my back like I am about to explode hmmhmm

Awful to be near a sniffer. It is so disgusting.

And I know there are billions of germs flitting about, but I feel like I can see them transferring on to any surface she is touching with her snotty hand! confusedconfused

It is horrible but I'm guessing not intentional. What's she supposed to do stuck on the train without a hankie? Maybe offer her one?

At this time of year it's probably hayfever rather than a cold.

Can you offer her a tissue? She might be grateful.

Maybe used all tissues, I always offer one and most times people say yes, if say no and carry on sniffing then disgusting

I doubt it came on just as she got on the train so she could've bought one with her or grabbed some tissue from the station toilets but I admittedly have no bollocksgrin

YANBU! I attended a training session in work a few weeks ago. The trainer clearly had a runny nose but would not blow it. Instead, she spent the whole time sniffing the dribble of snot every 10 secs. I was filled with RAGE throughout the whole thing and cannot remember any details of the training because in my head was I shouting 'BLOWYOURFUCKINGNOSEBLOWYOURFUCKINGNOSE' angry. I was a tension filled wreck by the end of the session.

Gives me the rage too. I had a sniffer sit next to me yesterday I had to move and stand up for my sanity!

The last time someone on a train next to me did this I offered her a tissue. She was embarrassed, but grateful.

I'm sat here sniffing right now.
I have no tissue.

Hayfever sucks.

I have been known to sleep with a tampon shoved up my beak!

You're not wearing perfume are you?

Nothing makes my eyes and nose go more than someone plonking themselves down next to me who has no concept of moderation when it comes to applying perfume. grin

I don't disagree, sniffing is bloody horrible. But this is an awful time of year for people with hay fever.

I do feel for them, really I do. I know how annoying it can be for them but this was full on dripping. Every time she sniffed I could hear the wet lumpiness of it followed by the clogged up exhalehmm. I can't fathom how she didn't have one ( regardless of how annoying) it must've been so uncomfortable for her, it does seem possible that she had run out

No, no perfume. She was sniffing as she got on.
